  •  Thank you (7+ / 0-)

    for allowing me to learn some things I did not know. I am one of those who only thought of Myrlie Evers-Williams as Medgar's widow. Because there was a period when the NAACP seemed to have been superceded by other, more "modern" civil-rights organizations, I did not know the story of how she saved it; I just knew that one day I looked up and it was back, bigtime.

    Tomorrow as I watch her give the invocation, I'll be keeping that in mind, and gratefully.

    (Also really nice to be having a woman and a lay person doing it!)
